response to hurricane katrina. other media outlets covered it as well. but what was not covered then was senator obama's praise for his controversial pastor jeremiah wright. the additional comments what about he called disparity in the way new orleans got federal assistance after katrina and his charge that that was because of race. >> there is a law, federal law when you get reconstruction money from the federal government called the stafford act. basically it says when you get federal money you have to give a 10% match, local government has to come up with 10%. every $10 federal government comes up with, local government has to give $1. now here is the thing. when 9/11 happened in new york city, they waived the stafford act and said this is too serious a problemch we can't expect new york city to rebuild on its own. forget that dollar you have to put in. here is $10. that was the right thing to d do. when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money here. here is the money to rebuild. we're in the
the gulf coast when katrina hit. people ask me whether they thought race was the reason the response was so slow. i said well, no, this administration was color-blind in its incompetence. but everyone here knows that the disaster and the poverty happened long before the hurricane hit. >> reporter: now, conservatives are posting segments of that 2007 speech. it was given by then candidate obama to clergy at hampton university. they say it's class warfare and full of racially charged speech. however, the obama campaign is dismissing the criticism. they are saying the reairing of these old clips is simply just an attempt to change the conversation away from those secretly recorded comments by mitt romney that surfaced two week ago with things that he had had to say about americans who do not pay taxes. >> the presidential debate starts tonight at 9:00. you can catch it right here live on fox 5 followed by live coverage and analysis on fox 5 news at 10:00 and also the edge at 11:00. >>> bad weather forced the plane carrying vice president i don't bide ton delay landings two times yesterday. whi
. the paradox of the mittens, katrina. >> i mean the romney/ryan campaign so far has been defined by dodge, duck and cover. there's no -- the specifics haven't been there. but you know i think it's wrong to think of mitt romney as his own man. he's a vehicle for a republican party that has become very extremist and a vehicle for a party that also is trying to straddle many different factions and fractions, but extremism has won out. so tomorrow, it's not going to be the lincoln/douglas debates, we'll hear massaged talking points and debates have not been so decisive except when the races are very already tight, kennedy/nixon, gore/bush, but we may well see the narrative of a 1% romney which we've seen reinforcing the 47%. video and that -- and out of touch with not only his own being who he was, but with ordinary voters, average people in this country. >> i'm -- i'm eager to see how romney deals with follow-up questions. ryan's stuff the contention i don't have enough time, what i'm trying to basically tear apart the american social compact, you know, in some -- if you interpret it in one way bu

the reaction to hurricane katrina and the inadequate reaction to hurricane ka treena. it's an interesting strategy by mitt romney and his allies that they want to defend the bush administration response. >> it sounds like you're saying -- >> it's a weird strategy. >> it sounds like you're saying -- >> i'm not saying mitt romney is responsible or the romney campaign is responsible. i do think it's allies to that campaign and they have the responsibility to stand up and say it was wrong. >> stephanie cutter, while she was talking, she had a spanish language reporter next to her. can you hear that noise? there was a plane flying by and a chopper over her head. so, thank you, stephanie, for dealing with those distractions as well. >> and it's cold out. >> and it's freezing cold. going to warm up, though. cnn, of course, will have complete coverage of tonight's debate that starts at 7:00 pm eastern right here on cnn and cnn.com. >>> john berman has other stories making news. >>> american airlines going to inspect 47 of its boeing 757s after seats came loose in flight on two of its planes withi
of the war in iraq, afghanistan, and the dismal response to the federal government to hurricane katrina, and the conditions that allowed the financial crisis of 2008 to happen, on and on. it is a long list. a few months ago, a cnn poll found bush is the least popular living ex-president. somehow he still gets better favorable ratings than the republican that wants to be our next president. here is the question. what does it mean for mitt romney if he's less popular than george w. bush? that can't good-bye. go to cnn.com/caffertyfile and post your comment on my blog. or go to our post on the situation room's facebook page. >> can't be good, indeed. thanks very much for that. lisa sylvester is monitoring some of the other top stories in "the situation room." including very ominous signs coming in from iraq. >> last month was the deadest in iraq in the last two years. 365 people lost their lives to the violence that still plague it is country. half of the victims were civilians. the other half soldiers and police. baghdad's government blames blood said on sunni insurgents with ties to al q
among other things of the government's response to hurricane katrina. >> when hurricane andrew struck in florida, people said, look at this devastation. we don't expect you to come up with your own money. here. here's the money to rebuild. we're not going to wait for you to scratch it together. because you're part of the american family. what's happening down in new orleans? where's your dollar? where's your stafford act money? it makes no sense. it tells me the bullet hasn't been taken out. it tells me that somehow the people down in new orleans, they don't care about as much. >> so at the same time yesterday, there was another video posted on the huffington post showing congressman paul ryan speaking in november of 2011 about ten months ago about a moral tipping point in the united states. that was six months before mitt romney's 47% remarks. >> before too long, we could become a society we were never, ever intended to be. we could become a society where the net majority of americans are takers, not makers. today, 70% of americans get more benefits from the federal government in dol

president obamab talking about race, the reverend wright and hurricane katrina. what are voters telling you? are these videos resonating? >> these voters are so worn down not only from the primary here in the state of new hampshire but over the past several months with the attack ads, back and forth, i don't know that they recognize either of the candidates if they weren't in slow motion in black and white. at the end of the day, i think what the voters are looking for is unless it's an extremely radical video, showing something -- even the 47% video which seemed to resonate with a lot of the country, that wasn't as big of a deal here in new hampshire. what people are looking for is what their solution is for jobs, the economy and things that are more substantive than viral videos unless it's, as i said, something really extreme. >> we'll look forward to some answers, honest answers. paul westcott, thank you. -[ taste buds ] donuts, donuts! -who are these guys? -oh, that's just my buds. -bacon. -my taste buds. -[ taste buds ] donuts. how about we try this new kind of fiber one cereal? you t
